My SymiLakisHappy 1st Birthday, SymiToday! 31/03/2008, 22:15

On the 1st April 2007, the Powers-that-be up in SymiGreece Towers decided to launch an ambitious new venture, unparalelled on any Greek island, maybe anywhere in the whole of Greece; to take a collection of photos every day for a year, providing an accessible record of Symi through Winter, Spring, Autumn...and Symi's wonderful Summer.

Since that day, a total of 9705 banner photos and larger photos have been added to the SymiGreece site, and can be viewed by visiting the superb Symi Day-by-Day Calendar.

That very first day the banners included images of the re-opening of Pat & Ali's Bar in Yialos for the 2007 Summer Season...



...my friend, Mickey...



...and the arrival of the first daytrippers of the year.




Since that first day, SymiGreece.com has covered the important Easter celebrations...



...as well as every major memorial day.



Summer walks around the island!



I, as the official mascot of the site, have featured in many photos myself...



...as have some of my friends.






After the long, hot Summer...



...had turned to Autumn...



...2007 drew to a close...



...and 2008 began.



Easter comes late this year in Greece...



...leaving extra time for play...



...and for getting ready for the new Summer that is just around the corner.


Here at SymiGreece we receive e-mails from people all over the World telling us how much they enjoy the daily photos, that they keep them connected to Symi, wherever they are. It's an achievement for which everyone involved should be proud. Well done SymiGreece!

I do hope you will all continue coming every day to enjoy the photographs as SymiToday moves into its second year.
